Bruno Mars’ tribute to Prince at the 59th Annual Grammy Awards was a show-stopping highlight.
This Sunday marks the 33rd anniversary of Prince’s iconic Purple Rain album, which was released in 1984. In honor of that anniversary, Mars has shared a behind-the-scenes look at the rehearsals for his memorable Grammy performance. Mars and his Hooligans rehearsed “Let’s Go Crazy” for the performance in Los Angeles, bathed in Prince-inspired purple lighting.
“33 years ago this Sunday, Prince and his band, The Revolution, released Purple Rain, one of the most important albums of all time,” reads the YouTube description for the video. “To celebrate the anniversary weekend, here’s a behind the scenes look of us rehearsing for the tribute we did at the 59th Grammy Awards.”
